The Cavan/Monaghan area has been identified as a target area for Pieta House.
Pieta House provides counselling for those at risk of suicide or self-harm, and for their families, and each year the Darkness into Light 5km event raises money to provide the service.
Over a quarter of a million euro has been raised by the Darkness into Light runs in Cavan and Monaghan over the last six years.
Speaking at the official launch of the local runs last night, Ciarán Brady – the Director of Funding and Advocacy – says Pieta House will be providing a service in Cavan and Monaghan in the near future.
Meanwhile this woman who was at last night’s meeting, has welcomed the news that Pieta House will be looking to deliver its service in the Cavan/Monaghan area.
